I use Windows 10's File History for my backups on a drive that isn't always plugged in, so I have to launch the backup manually.

Is there a way to directly launch a File History backup from a script, instead of going in the Settings app ?


To start File History backup on demand, you can use this command-line. Note that it's a undocumented switch and may not necessarily work in future builds.

FhManageW -backupnow
